drumroll please....I beat a neon....but not by much:p

I was mainly there just to practice lauinching with the 5 sp, with the mt's on
and its an 89 and fully stock =(

main thing is i inproved with each run and need to check out the source of a miss in the engine


I just couldn't wait any longer, just had to get out there...now gotta get the red one out there:D

i have never been there, maybe i'll ride my bike over sometime, or get my son to take his stang up there. he turns the quarter in 12.7s with a trap speed of 118.9 mph. needless to say he has traction issues.

I started around 10.83 and worked it down to 10.47 1/8th mi

not great compared to most but I am happy as long as I am better each time


I will have that vidoe posted later

there ya go mel. i think the next time you bring it to run, we need to run it with the street tires on it and see how it runs. and i MIGHT even run mine after i get the trans back in it. thanks again for hookin me up with the trans. if i dont race the bird, i will race the stang at least. i felt majorly left out not having my own car to run last night

I run a 9.7 here in va,temps were in the 90's.Working on rerouting my windshield washers to spray my intercooler down with water and alcohol and shoot for a 9.5!Keep up the good work though icing the blower and intercooler down helps alot too!!

Looks like I'll be rebuilding your rear end this winter. Driver's side burnouts are no good
